My husband and I went rock climbing to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. We did a morning 1/2 day climb, followed by a sunset multi-pitch climb with a wonderful rappel and "surprise" at the end. It was absolutely spectacular. Our guide, Marie, was terrific. She was flexible, offered lots of options, super professional and personable--everything you would want in... More

I'm so happy that your anniversary turned out so well! We've had multiple anniversaries and honeymoon trips this year, and it's always fun to help people celebrate their relationship. Be in touch when you're headed back, and we'll figure out something for the whole family! More

I wanted to treat my granddaughter to a day of rock climbing at Moab before she returns to college. I reviewed and contacted several companies, selecting MDA because owner, Nate Sydnor, was most responsive and informative. It was an excellent choice. Nate guided my granddaughter. Being a protective grandmother, I went along, observed, and photographed. Nate was gracious and accommodating.... More

I wanted to come to Moab to do some rock climbing. I emailed a bunch of companies and eventually settled on MDA because the owner, Nate, was very responsive with emails and answered all the questions I had. Nate was also very accommodating and flexible to my last minute changes in agenda. I got paired up with my guide, Matt.... More

I'm so glad you had a great time out there with Matt. He truly is one of the best, and you are right that he is the consummate desert climber. I knew you two would send! Climbing those two towers in the same trip is truly a dream, and I'm glad the weather shaped up so you could pull it... More

Absolutely fantastic trip. Five of us spent a half day being guided by Nate. The trip was challenging. But Nate kept teaching and encouraging the entire time. This adventure was well worth the money. We'll be back - probably for a guided climb!

On a whim we dropped into their storefront, Nate and Matt were there in the afternoon and talked us through what a outdoor climb would be like. Matt was our guide and was super awesome, patient, knowledgeable, encouraging for my two teens. With just the 3 of us we spent lots of time climbing and little waiting. It was the... More

My sister (14) and I (20) went out canyoneering with Marie as our guide, and it was absolutely fantastic. It was definitely the highlight of our trip. Marie was super friendly, encouraging, and showed us things that we would have missed otherwise. My sister and I are both pretty shy, so Marie was wonderful and we got to do so... More

We went climbing with our kids - ages 9, 11, 12 - with guide Marie. We had a great experience and a fantastic climb up a slab that I never would have thought we could do. It was a huge challenge but we all did it! Marie showed everyone all the basics for climbing - how to tie our knots,... More

The other half and I had never been canyoneering until today, what an adventure! We signed up for the 4 hour canyoneering tour for the holiday weekend. We were pleasantly greeted by Nate, and our guide, Marie, first thing this morning. Nate dropped us off to hike back into the sand flats and do some rappelling down into Morning Glory... More
